Musumeci is a musical project by Mauro Di Martino, Sicilian DJ, and producer since the late 80s. After two decades of releasing music under several aliases, Mauro merged into Musumeci’s alter ego in 2009. He is also a member of Human Machine and the owner of Engrave Ltd, Multinotes Recordings & Buttress Records. Constantly in demand as a producer and remixer, his music appears on labels like Bedrock, Connaisseur, Compost Black Label, Diynamic Music, Endless, Innervisions, Kompakt & Watergate.
In 2015 Bedrock asked Musumeci to remix Nick Warren & Guy Mantzur’s ‘Sad Robot’ which hit N°5 on Beatport Techno Chart. In that same year, he also hit the N°1 position on Beatport Electronic Music Chart twice with his remix of Patrick Chardronnet’s classic ‘All I Got’ on Connaisseur Recordings and with the Musumeci & Lehar remix of Ost & Kjex’s anthem ‘Easy’ on Diynamic Music.
In 2016 he made his debut with side project ‘Human Machine’, delivering two eps, ‘146′ on
Connaisseur Recordings and ‘The Mule’ on Exit Strategy, as well as their track ‘Africa’ on
Diynamic Music. All those tracks are among the 100 most played tracks of the year on Resident
Advisor. In 2017, Musumeci debuted on Solomun’s Diynamic Music with the ep “Mood Organs”. The release reached N7 on Beatport overall sales and opened doors of international clubs and festivals scene for him.
